Deciding when your child should enter Prep requires careful consideration about the best educational interest of your child. Your child's development when entering school has a long-lasting impact on progress and success throughout their schooling.
In Queensland, it is compulsory for your child to complete Prep before progression to Year 1. Your child will become eligible for Prep if they are aged 5 years by 30 June in the year of proposed attendance. Early or delayed entry to Prep may be considered in specific circumstances, and if deemed in the best educational interest of your child. Holy Family and Brisbane Catholic Education follow the Queensland Department of Education's position on early entry and delayed entry.
Entry to Prep
Please refer to the table below as a guide as to when your child will be eligible for Prep in all Queensland schools.
